Hybrid hyper-reduced modeling for contact mechanics problems

Abstract : The model reduction of mechanical problems involving contact remains an important issue in computational solid mechanics. In this article, we propose an extension of the hyper‐reduction method based on a reduced integration domain to frictionless contact problems written by a mixed formulation. As the potential contact zone is naturally reduced through the reduced mesh involved in hyper‐reduced equations, the dual reduced basis is chosen as the restriction of the dual full‐order model basis. We then obtain a hybrid hyper‐reduced model combining empirical modes for primal variables with finite element approximation for dual variables. If necessary, the inf‐sup condition of this hybrid saddle‐point problem can be enforced by extending the hybrid approximation to the primal variables. This leads to a hybrid hyper‐reduced/full‐order model strategy. This way, a better approximation on the potential contact zone is further obtained. A posttreatment dedicated to the reconstruction of the contact forces on the whole domain is introduced. In order to optimize the offline construction of the primal reduced basis, an efficient error indicator is coupled to a greedy sampling algorithm. The proposed hybrid hyper‐reduction strategy is successfully applied to a 1‐dimensional static obstacle problem with a 2‐dimensional parameter space and to a 3‐dimensional contact problem between two linearly elastic bodies. The numerical results show the efficiency of the reduction technique, especially the good approximation of the contact forces compared with other methods.
